Graduate Degrees in Intuitive Interspecies Communication

Ubiquity University is partnering with Animaltalk Africa to offer practitioners the opportunity to earn graduate degrees (MA, PhD, and MA/PhD) in Intuitive Interspecies Communication (IIC).

“Through listening to the animals and Nature we are given the key to understanding ourselves and our role in this life.”

The ability to communicate with all animals is innate within each of us. Indigenous African wisdom teaches us that we can connect with Nature on a heart level, and that unconditional love is the key frequency to this process. In this way, our ability to communicate with all animals and the entire natural world can be both reawakened and nurtured. There can be no separation.

Intuitive Interspecies Communication (IIC), also known as Animal Communication, is becoming globally recognised as an important way to understand beings who do not communicate through human words.

Ubiquity University, in partnership with Animaltalk Africa, is delighted to offer this graduate program in Intuitive Interspecies Communication. On completion of the core program, you will have enough experience and knowledge of these practices to develop your own unique and well-researched contribution to the field in the form of a higher education degree. You will also feel a deep connection to Nature enabling you to find your true direction to make positive change.


On its own, Animaltalk Africa’s Practitioner Certificate is a one-of-a-kind specialization that provides learners with theoretical and practical experience in animal communication. Honing this innate skill enables you to truly grow and gain confidence in many aspects of life in general. Listening to the guidance of the animals and Nature helps to gain insight into how the world could be, with all species living and thriving together in an ecocentric model, rather than the current egocentric way of being.

You will have access to mentors who are there to guide you throughout this journey. There is an extensive reading list to support these studies. In the online student community forum you will share experiences and gather great support from fellow learners.

Once the three levels of the course are completed, graduates will become part of an international community of qualified Intuitive Interspecies or Animal Communicators who can refer clients to each other- particularly for home visits in different countries- and also offer each other support for this important work.

Completion of this course qualifies learners to be placed on Animaltalk Africa’s list of ethical and reputable animal communicators. This will allow practitioners to advertise their services, and to be recommended to clients by Animaltalk Africa.

Those who have completed or enrolled in the Practitioner Certificate program with Animaltalk Africa may also enroll with Ubiquity to upgrade their certificate to a graduate degree.

We recommend that your program begins with Ubiquity’s Creative Journey to Dissertation course, which will give you the tools to shape, and eventually write, your thesis or dissertation. You will then complete your coursework with Animaltalk Africa, and return again to Ubiquity for the higher education credential.

About the program

Students will need to complete the following three Animaltalk Africa courses to qualify for the graduate degree path:

Level I: Introduction to Animal Communication

This introductory course will help learners achieve a better understanding of the concept and history of Animal Communication, and understand that Intuitive Interspecies Communication is about getting in touch with all of Nature and connecting with our natural selves.

Learners learn to better understand Life Energy, or the energy of the heart, which connects us all and to understand how to effectively communicate with other animals.

Learners will have opportunities to practice communicating with different animals in many different circumstances. These practice sessions include tracking missing animals and communicating with animals in spirit.

Level 2: Animal Communication - Intermediate

This Intermediate course is designed for those who have completed the Introduction Course to Animal Communication. By this stage learners will be familiar with their own unique process of communicating with all animals. Now is the opportunity to communicate with other species in Nature such as the plant beings, and even the mineral and elemental world. In this next level learners gain confidence in their work and overcome any fears or challenges about using their skills, finding their purpose, and how best they can work with the knowledge base they have developed.

This course guides learners through some very deep processing and inner work. Students are encouraged to start finding their own case studies to practice with, and to put themselves out there on different forums and physical communities, preparing for the Practitioner level. Regular practice is essential in building self-trust and trust in other species. Practice sessions opportunities are part of the course content.

Level 3: Animal Communication: Practitioner

This course prepares learners for the Practitioner’s certification, guiding them towards becoming a professional animal communicator/IIC Practitioner. Learners will have to submit 24 successful case studies on their way to earning this certification. For more information about these programs, please click here.

I am so grateful for the support I received from the ATA community… I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in gaining a basic knowledge in Animal Communication or who are interested in becoming a practitioner.”

Anthea Myburgh

Anthea Myburgh’s journey into animal communication and holistic
healing ignited in 2012. The transformation that happened through animal
communication assistance from Wynter Worsthorne was enough to convince her then
skeptical heart that ‘this stuff works’! This process was the beginning of her

and exploration expanded into numerous holistic modalities including Family

Fascia Energy Healing for animals. Drawing from the sacred Munay-Ki Rites
(Rites of Love) and the Medicine Wheel, Anthea integrates their teachings into
her practice, recognising the interconnectedness of all modalities (and
beings). With over a decade of learning and growth, she remains an avid
student, embracing every encounter as an opportunity for expansion. Guided by
the Ubuntu ethos, Anthea looks forward to continuing her journey, connecting
with others, and sharing the transformative power of love and healing. She
